IDG Launches ASID Student Design Contest

Manchester, NH, November 1, 2005--International Design Guild and its affiliated member showrooms are preparing to launch their annual ASID Student Design Contest. For the past eight years, the contest has served to recognize and reward ASID student designers for their outstanding floorcovering creations in both broadloom and rug categories and has awarded over $80,000 to contest winners. Contest applicants have the opportunity to win cash awards in denominations of $2,500, $1,000 and $100 for first-place, first runner-up and honorable mention, respectively. A panel of seasoned luxury floorcovering Guild showroom owners will judge entries based on individuality, use of color, and overall design. Contest applicants may submit as many entries as they wish in both broadloom and rug categories and Guild members will complete judging entries by February 1, 2006. Krista Eliason, Vice President of the International Design Guild explains, “Everyone in our organization is amazed year after year at the amount of stunning entries we receive. There are many gifted students who deserve to be recognized for their talent.” Contest entry forms are available at under the Student Center tab. For more details and contest rules contact Deborah M. Lamoureux for any ASID Student Design Contest questions at (800) 450-7595 or e-mail her at
